Comedian Chris Redd, who recently left the cast of NBC‘s Saturday Night Live, was assaulted outside of a popular New York City comedy club.
According to TMZ, Redd was sucker-punched in the face earlier this week as he approached the venue he was scheduled to perform at that night. As the comic was getting out of his vehicle in front of the Comedy Cellar, a man dressed as a security guard attacked Redd.
The suspect hit him in the face and left him with a bloody nose before fleeing the scene. This took place on Wednesday around 9:40 p.m. Redd was rushed to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan, where he received treatment.
Police officers were reportedly on patrol in the area and were quickly on the scene after the attack.
Blood was on the sidewalk as a bystander took a video after the incident.
